110 miles in one day! UPDATE

UPDATE - Ellie completed her ride covering 111 miles in just over 13 hours.
For the full story, see Ellie's "Just Giving" page here.


One of our regular volunteers, Ellie Nadin, is riding from her backyard to Barmouth in one day .... that's 110 miles. What's most impressive is that she's only just turned sixteen!.

In her Dad's word's, "My once couch potato daughter is fast becoming a serious endurance mountain biker, with a goal of riding from home to Barmouth on the Welsh coast, 110 miles, on Saturday 3rd August to raise funds for the Donna Louise Trust, who provide hospice, terminal and respite care for life limited and terminally ill children in Staffordshire and Cheshire."

".... shes riding at every opportunity now, and after taking a day off for her 16th Birthday this week, she's put in over 150 miles in the last five days days alone ( very warm miles I might add!), including a 71 miler early on last Saturday morning."

She can't even be separated from her bike in her Prom Dress!

To find out the full story behind Ellie's challenge, watch this video.

If you'd like to support this great cause, which has just gone past the £800 mark and smashed her original target of £200, please visit Ellie's "Just Giving" page here.
